Defining Fine Art Photography

A little over four years ago, I told my dad I wanted to explore the idea of getting into photography. He handed me his old Nikon D200, a manual lens and a few accessories, and I never looked back. 

When you're a brand new photographer you are taking photos of anything and everything. From mid-October through the end of the 2012, I took just shy of 3,000 images; comprised of everything from the landscapes I love to shoot, to my lens cap. The problem with this is you find yourself with thousands of images with no real direction. A few months ago I decided I needed to truly define myself as a photographer and curate my work to fit that definition.
